Marketing with Mary (in case you missed it)

At the June 7 Great Lakes ACFW meeting, we dug into the core methods of marketing necessary for pre-published writers. Using an interactive handout packet and a current work-in-progress, each attendee explored how to build a tribe specific to her brand and/or specific to the chosen manuscript. The foundational concept: understanding who the audience is for your writing and narrowing your available marketing hours to that group of people.

Feedback from some of those who attended:

"After fifteen years of writing and knocking on publishing house doors finally relying on self-publication to get my work out there, I found Mary’s insights about pre-publication work not only valuable but essential knowledge that I lacked.  Her interactive presentation was not condescending, which produced incentives for further goal setting and hope for the future." Rohn Federbush

"Mary Vee presented Marketing as a Pre-Pubbed Writer today in Lansing. It was fantastic, and there were several of us who benefited from it. Worth it, all of it. THANK YOU, Mary Vee!" Joy Melville

"Valuable information, which Mary presented very well! You did such a wonderful job, Mary Vee! Thanks for putting together such a valuable workshop!"   Kathleen Rouser

"Enjoyed the workshop thanks for all your preparation, so much good information."  Nelle Cooper
